Why was this not on the news?

I want to know why this news conference wasn’t shown on the news.  It looks to me like the liberal media is trying to stifle free speech.  I can’t believe this next video was not show on the national news.  It is totally appalling.

Please write the networks to let them know as journalists it is their duty to present all the facts in an unbiased manner.

I’m just curious…

I’m just curious, when did it become okay for our elected officials, the people we put in office, to come out against the will of the people and try and overturn it?  I am sick and tired of our elected officials coming out against prop 8.  If prop 8 was illegal why was it put on the ballot?  Give me a break!

There are 29 other states that have passed similar laws and amendments.  Why is California not allowed the same right?  More voters turned out in California to vote on this proposition than in any of the other states.  The people have spoken, isn’t it obvious that the majority of Californians, and Americans for that matter, do not want same-sex marriage.  No one said they did not think same-sex couples don’t have the right to be together.  No one said same-sex couples don’t have the right to equal protection under the law.  What the people are saying is we don’t want marriage redefined.  Isn’t that one of the oppositions arguments?  Aren’t they trying to say that prop 8 is redefining the constitution?  What about my right to defend the definition of marriage?  Don’t I have a right to defend the definition of something I hold dear?  I think the answer to all of these questions is YES.  There is one big difference though, when I was exercising my right to defend something I believe in, I did it peacefully.  I never protested, though I was irate that Gavin Newson thought that he had the right to single-handedly overturn the will of the people, just because he wanted  to win a few brownie points.  I never yelled and screamed, called people horrible names, or defaced other people’s property because I was livid that four judges thought that they had the right to overturn the will of the people.  What happened to my right to vote, and know that my vote counts for something?  I already know that when it comes to voting for a president, I’m usually in the minority and my vote doesn’t really count.  But when I vote for local and state issues I expect my vote to count for something.  I expect my voice to be  heard and respected.  I expect my government  and judicial system to honor my  decisions and not just throw them out if they disagree with them.  The people have spoken TWICE.  This time an even larger number of people turned out to vote to have their voices heard.  Why is our state and local government refusing to listen?

Tired of the lies!

I am so tired of the “No on Prop 8”  lies and manipulations.  I tired of the media’s liberal biased view.    What happened to neutral journalism? You know when just the facts were presented as facts, without all the half truths and biased spins.  This is totally ridiculoius.

FACT: Marriage is between 1man and 1 woman.  The purpose of marriage is to create families. Traditional   marriage is protected because it benefits society.

FACT:Interracial  marriages are between 1 man and 1 woman.  The purpose of  interracial marriage is to create families. Interracial marriage is protected because it benefits society.

FACT:Same sex marriage is between 2 men or  2 women.  These unions can not create children that are genetically unique to the two people involved.

How does same sex marriage benefit society?

How can you compare interracial and same sex marriage?  You can’t, they are not the same.  The gender makeups involved in these relationships are different.

When they started allowing interracial marriages, because they were unconstitutional, paperwork and licenses did not need to be changed because the basic requirements for a marriage license did not change: one man + one woman, not related, over 18, not already married.

It’s very basic.  Please vote YES on prop.8 , restore the definition of marriage.  No one is loosing any rights.  Registered  Domestic Partners have all the same rights and privileges as married spouses under the law (California family code 297.5).

YES on Prop 8

The truth.

I love this painting. It speaks volumes about the truth without ever saying a word. Marriage is and should always be between a man and a woman.

Jenedy is an amazing artist. You can visit her sight and read her thoughts on this painting as well as others. http://jenedypaigepaintings.blogspot.com/.

Great Video about CTA donation to No on 8

Here’s a great video made by a public school teacher about the California Teacher’s Association spending money to defeat Proposition 8.  Why is the CTA getting involved in this?

Is Marriage Really A Civil Right?

This is what I don’t understand, how is marriage a civil right?

To get married you need a license.  To get any kind of license you have to meet certain requirements.  The two main requirements for have always been: You have to be the appropriate age for the state in which you plan to get married, and you need a husband(man) and a wife(woman).  Those who are in a committed same gender relationship, do not meet those requirements.  That is why they are not allowed to get married.  It is not because they are being discriminated against or their civil rights are being violated.  They simply do not meet the requirements.  If they did, there would not have been such a mad rush to change the actual marriage license and all the paperwork pertaining to it, when the California supreme court over turned Prop. 22.

Would you argue that a blind person’s civil rights are being violated because they born that way and can not obtain a drivers license?    Absolutely not.  There are certain requirements for obtaining a drivers license, and I think we all know that being able to see is by far the most important one.  But if you apply the same logic to this issue, that gay rights activist apply to marriage, then a blind person MUST be allowed to receive a driver license, because it isn’t his fault that he was born that way.  It doesn’t matter how it will affect anyone else, his civil rights are being violated.

These definition was obtained from dictionary.com:

civil rights
pl.n.   The rights belonging to an individual by virtue of citizenship, especially the fundamental freedoms and privileges guaranteed by the 13th and 14th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution and by subsequent acts of Congress, including civil liberties, due process, equal protection of the laws, and freedom from discrimination.


Please look at this objectively at this issue.   Proposition 8 does not discriminate or take away the rights of anyone.  Under California Family code 297.5 is states Very clearly that registered domestic partners have all the same rights and privileges as spouses.  Check it out for yourself:

If we start making accomidations to special interest groups under the guise of civil rights, where do we draw the line?

There is a difference

This whole Prop. 8 thing is really bugging me. I’m tired of people thinking that I am prejudice just because I think marriage should only be between a man and a woman. I think if people would take all the emotions out of it, and look at things logically. They would have to agree that gay marriage just doesn’t make any sense. Here is my attempt at an emotionless, non judgmental argument. There apples and oranges. They are both fruits. They both come from trees. For my argument’s sake, they are nutritionally equal. Sometimes they are bitter. Sometimes they are sweet. They have some common uses. You can make juice with them, you can cook with them, and you can eat them raw. If your shopping for fruit, your decision is based on preference. Now let’s suppose oranges feel they are being treated unequally because throughout history apples have been more prevalent (ex. an apple a day keeps the doctor away; if you want to impress your teacher bring them an apple). Now oranges want to be called apples too. Any logical person would have to agree that oranges couldn’t start calling themselves apples. They are oranges and not apples. It would be confusing. If a recipe called for an apple and you used an orange instead, because it was called an apple, it just wouldn’t be the same. So here’s how I translate my little analogy the apples are marriage and the oranges are domestic partnership. They are both committed relationships. In the eyes of state law they are both equal. Some marriages and domestic partnerships are good (the people involved love and care for each other). Some marriages and domestic partnerships are bad (they are abusive or unfaithful). They do have some things in common, two people love each other, and want to share their lives. The biggest most important issue is that domestic partners can not have children, that are biologically half of each partner. Men and women are designed in such a way that you need one of each to create a family. Sometimes things don’t go as smoothly or work together accordingly. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a plan and that we shouldn’t strive for the ideal.
